Toomey, Patrick J.

GOP Weekly Address on Oct. 17, 2015: Penalizing Sanctuary Cities

From the GOP: In the Weekly Republican Address, Sen. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania previews legislation on the Senate floor next week that would penalize ‘sanctuary’ cities – municipalities that forbid local police from cooperating with federal immigration officials when dealing with illegal immigrants. The Stop Sanctuary Policies Act would also provide additional protections to law enforcement and crack down on repeat illegal border crossers and violent felons, a provision known as Kate’s Law.
